Writing Prompt

From Thirteen Writing Prompts at McSweeney's

1.Write a scene showing a man and a woman arguing over the man's friendship with a former girlfriend. Do not mention the girlfriend, the man, the woman, or the argument.

The debris covered the living room with a scattering of pottery, broken beyond repair, mirrored glass, reflecting the shards haphazardly and a spattering of blood, spilled by the unwary.

The tryptich that had sat on the mantle would never be the same again, mangled beyond recognition, the photos within torn from their mountings and shredded until the subjects were past recognition beyond a flash of skintone here, or a floral dress there, the happy beach scene reduced to its component parts. The engagement ring had riccocheted past the fireplace and currently sat, sharing couchspace with the terrified feline, holes in the setting demonstrating the force of the initial throw, the scattered diamonds glittering in the flickering firelight.
